As some users are reporting serious problems with finished WU's uploading I have to dry server, unload queue to get more info what's happaend.
So, we will not generate new taks at least for next two-three weeks.

The upload problem isn’t solved.
I have now a lot of Universe uv WUs witch I cannot upload.

Always the same problem happens. The project generates 6 upload files when a WU is finished.

_1-_5 are transferred in a second but _0 hangs

The upload problem remained. I have several tens of tasks in queue for uploading. Perhaps many tasks in this queue more than 24 hours.

Hmm...I must be getting lucky. I haven't noticed any upload problems in at least the last 24 hours and I've had 22 cores/threads running full time.

I have a problem on four computers. The uploading queue is 2-10 tasks only on one of them. On other three computers the queue is more than 100-150-200 tasks. And perhaps it is already more than 48 hours.

All computers work 24/7.

The queue doesn't allow to receive new tasks:
Not requesting tasks: too many uploads in progress

Error at the time of uploading:
Temporarily failed upload of universe_bh2_160803_202_491679509_20000_1-999999_680200_0_r342353569_5: transient HTTP error
Backing off 03:54:16 on upload of universe_bh2_160803_202_491679509_20000_1-999999_680200_0_r342353569_5

I have removed the universe_bh2_160803_202_491679509_20000_1-999999_680200_0_r342353569_5 file in the uploading queue and have received a uploading error for WU:

I have removed the universe_bh2_160803_202_456974544_20000_1-999999_975200_......_0 file in the uploading queue and the task has changed the status to successful:

I have removed in the uploading queue all files with _0 to the name end. They were several tens. Several tasks from them have received the status a uploading error. The majority of tasks has turned into the status successful and they have got CS.

As a result I have removed all uploading queue and have received the final status a uploading error for 18 tasks. It were files with _4 and... _5 to the name end.

I have repeated these actions on other computers. About 10-20% of tasks have received the status a error. Others have got CS.

I had an issue with tasks not uploading and I gave up and del the project and reinstalled it.
That did not help, it was 2 computers out of several had the problem.
The MSG. was server backed off retry in 1.23.33 or shorter times and some as long as 5 hours.
Hitting retry now did not help at all.

I fixed it by adding this line to my CC_config.xml file. <http_1_0>1</http_1_0>
So now it looks like this. ( I had to do this one another system for another project)
It worked for me, maybe will work for you....

This project was picked for a spring challenge so I am running on several systems.
And it is cold here, I need the heat!!!

I just went through all my systems, found 3 more that the uploads were hung.
I either added that HTTP line or had to ad the whole CC+config file.
But it worked every time.
Sorry I lost several dozen tasks yesterday. But at least I know now how to fix it now.

Having problems with uploading....been stuck for over two days now. I wonder if aborting will solve the problem. Already suspended and resumed and still on my task list as uploading...possibly have to remove project from manager and reattach it...last resort...thanks for any information you can come up with...
